DUTERTE to ensure smooth transition of power

Sen. Christopher “Bong” Go reassured the Filipino public that the Duterte Administration will guide the country’s next leaders to ensure a seamless transition of power.

Executive departments have been heeding the President’s directions, according to the senator, to guarantee that everything is in order during the transition.

On May 10, Duterte signed Administrative Order No. 47 which establishes a Presidential Transition Committee to monitor the transfer of power to the next government and ensure that public services are delivered without interruption. The committee will be chaired by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea.

Go then believes that, despite the fact that elections can be divisive, healing would eventually occur and the Filipino people will once again come together.

The senator stated that the country needs unity now more than ever, particularly in light of the pandemic and other crises


Senator Christopher “Bong” Go has expressed his support for President Rodrigo Duterte’s decision to stop online cockfighting or e-sabong operations in the Philippines, saying that the decision was reached after a thorough cost-benefit study.

Go said benefits of online cockfighting cannot outweigh the social harm it causes

Go believes Duterte’s move is in the best interests of the Filipino people, adding that e-sabong operations can be harmful to Filipino families due to the social issues that comes with it such as gambling and its recent impact on peace and order.

The president has earlier instructed the DILG to look into e-sabong operations, citing reports of people pawning their belongings simply to play the popular gambling game. On April 19 and 20, the agency polled over 8,400 people, with 62% wishing to put an end to e-sabong.

In the meantime, Go urged his fellow lawmakers to look into ways on how to regulate similar gambling activities to ensure that its negative social impacts are addressed.
